Oh Hello

I keep meaning to post interesting things and updates on my life, but I am so stinkin’ busy that I am not doing as well as I had hoped.

And now I am sick, and I took some Tylenol Cold nighttime, so I have no idea what I am writing.

The end.

Storm

how long have I
been in this storm
so overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless form
water’s getting harder to tread
with these waves crashing over my head

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I’d see you
the storminess will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
and everything will be alright

I know you didn’t
bring me out here to drown
so why am I 10 feet under and upside down
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause I’m so used to living underneath the surface

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I see you
the storminess will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright

and I will walk on water
you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
I know everything is alright
everything’s alright

Concerning Life & Love

I graduate in less than 3 months!  HOLY CRAP!  This means I really have to get my act together and finish all of my homework well and quickly.  Psh yeah right.

I love talking to people.  I think I am pretty good at it and I would like to do a lot of it.  Sometimes it is hard for me to talk to people though that I do not have a topic set up for.  For example, at Justin’s family gatherings I am often quiet.

Bringing those last two paragraphs together… I need to start looking for a job.  Although I do not really want to work ever again in my life, I need to.  I really like expensive things!  Every semester when I register for classes (and when I change majors) I have the entire thing figured out perfectly and I usually have back up plans.  My advisors were always very impressed and I barely needed them to figure anything out for me.  that said, I think I would like being a college academic advisor of some sort.  I would love to work at the U doing so, but you need a masters degree.  So I am thinking about trying to find a job at St. Kates or St. Thomas.  (Those schools because if I go there and decide to get my masters, I can take classes at a discount.)

Also, I love Justin!  Being married is really great.  I do not really feel like a Gehring yet though, I still am a Radabaugh.  I am not sure how that mentality changes, or if it will just happen.  And talking to people about “My Husband” is definitely still weird.  It will all feel normal soon enough!

Message to Schoolchildren

I have been going to school for approximately 100 years now.  I began this century of schooling by earning A’s because I was great and didn’t need to study or work hard.  I transitioned into not being able to do that, but the problem was I never learned how to properly study, take tests, or do anything at all.

The moral of the story for all of you still in school is:

  • Go to class
  • Listen and take notes that make sense
  • Read the material sooner than later
  • Do your homework before 10 hours before its due
  • Repeat what you learn however you can- to a friend, to your bunny, or simply by reading it again
  • Don’t suck

The end.

Politics and Groceries

Justin and I continually have a debate over voting.  Now that we are married and are actively watching the election coverage together, I want to make sure that we vote the same way.  This way, we are not cancelling each other’s votes out.  If Justin wanted to vote for the opposite candidate as I do because of strong political reasons, then I would understand that.  But Justin wants to vote for Colbert.  I feel that in our day and age, you need to vote, and you need to vote for a Democrat or a Republican.  If you feel strongly about a third party candidate then vote for them, but if you do not have a preference, at least vote for the one you dislike the least.  Justin thinks that voting for someone who isn’t running, or even himself, it is sending a statement.  I just think that the point it sends isn’t enough of one to waste your vote.

Justin and I grocery shopped together for real for the first time tonight.  He drives me crazy!! He has to compare price per ounce on everything!  It is kind of cute I guess, jsut time consuming.  But I loved the time we spent together!  I love being married!
